I was shortchanged – Monday Utere speaks on the Utere Family saga over Maltina Dance all money won
Mike Ikenwa (Mike): Hello Mr. Jeremiah, How you doing?
Jeremiah Monday Utterre (JMU): Very fine.
Mike: What’s the news we are getting from the Utere family?
JMU: What news?
Mike: Regarding the Maltina Dance All money
JMU: You know how it is. One person gets greedy and short changes the rest.
Mike: You mean they short changed u?
JMU: Well its nothing g to worry over. It’s a family thing and stuff like these are bound to happen. Yup. But I’m over it now a d I’ve moved on with my life.
Mike: But I heard that you are the only one person complaining about this?
JMU: Yes of course, others won’t complain, they are just kids, I got family and bills to pay. And for fear of being pushed outside the Utere family circle, they won’t complain.
Mike: According to what I heard, they said that what you are fighting over is the share of the leader who lead the team to the competition.
JMU: What is share? Was I asking for the whole money? I wanted what was due me.
Mike: Are you saying they haven’t given you your share of the 10m won?
JMU: Was it too much to ask for a family man who did most of the appreciative work for us to win?
Mike: So you have not gotten any share?
JMU: See, I said I was given a little compared to what they’ve got?
Mike How many of you went to the competition?
JMU: That u have to ask them. Like I said earlier, I am over that money. I used what I got to build me and my family a small house and I am okay with my life.
Mike: When you asked for the remaining, what did you get from them as a response?
JMU: Still nothing and I don’t care about it anymore. I have chosen the right way for me to deal with it. And thanks for your concern. Now you know I wasn’t being greedy. I just wanted a fair share of the money. When u watched the competition, who and who do u remember most? Me and the little boy brought fun and family happiness to the dance. We all worked as a team but they all turned against me. It’s all good.
I’ve got to go now, duty calls.
Mike: Alright thanks for your time. I hope to speak with you again in the future
